Red-Bellied Woodpecker Ornament
This red-bellied woodpecker ornament was a special request. While it has already found a home, you may contact me if you would like one of own.
The ornament is an eggshell covered with polymer clay which makes it lightweight, yet durable.
I loved the challenge of figuring out how to create the wings without painting. Hello mokume gane! This is a technique where you stack sheets of clay and then slice off pieces to reveal a pattern. You can see in the photo below a block that looks like a licorice candy. That is what I used for the feathers.
